Solar is at a tipping point and poised for massive growth.  We are about to witness the true economically-driven birth of a global solar industry.  Unfortunately the negativity surrounding the industry has masked this epic change in which the very cost reductions that are causing angst are also the positive driving force for an industry that is emerging from its early stages.  As we enter the Brave New world of what I refer to as Solar 2.0, the U.S. has real competitive advantages and can, must and will succeed.

Brad Mattson is currently CEO of Solexant, a next-generation solar startup. Mattson is a renowned entrepreneur from the semiconductor industry. Starting at Applied Materials, he later founded and scaled both Novellus and Mattson Technology, to date the only founder of two publicly traded semiconductor equipment firms. Most recently, Mr. Mattson was a Partner at Vantage Point Venture Partners working in the Cleantech area, leading the solar sector, but also focusing on lighting, transport and scaling. Mr. Mattson holds 12 patents in semiconductor technology, and in 2005 he was listed as one of the top 50 most influential people in the Semiconductor Industry. He has received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 1998 from Ernst & Young,, the Distinguished Alumni Award from San Jose State University in 1999, the Founders Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship from Santa Clara University in 2008. Mr. Mattson brings not only the management experience of taking start-up companies to scale and IPO, but adds the capability of world class equipment expertise to the world-class materials expertise of the founders.
